Who are people with disabilities? For far too long the answer to this question has been to focus on the health conditions of a person, but what if a new conceptual framework facilitated inclusion? In this interactive note, you will learn the social model of disability; why inclusion is a legal, moral and economic imperative; as well as concrete practices of what inclusion means in education, health, social protection, work, and the prevention of violence for women and girls with disabilities.
